Spacious and very comfortable 4-bedroom country cottage, sleeping up to 5 with 3 bathrooms. Great for families, groups of friends and intergenerational groups who may need ground floor bedroom and shower room. Pet-friendly too! The country cottage offers spectacular views over the Strathearn valley and beyond, with walks from the door. Enjoying an elevated position, set among fields, yet only a five minute drive to Crieff with its shops, restaurants and attractions.

The space

Very spacious cottage over two floors with lovely large, yet homely living spaces. With one double room and three single rooms, one of which is on the ground floor, the cottage is perfect for a family or small group of friends. The benefit of a ground floor shower room makes it easy for anyone with mobility issues to stay with their friends or family. The cottage is well-equipped with all mod cons and the kitchen provides ample seating and cooking facilities for you to enjoy time together. As the property has been renovated recently, it is well insulated and very cosy, with an open wood fire to enjoy in the evenings. You will find a DVD library and holiday reads as well as toys and board games to entertain everyone.
The extensive views surrounding the cottage are of beautiful fields and hills but we are closeby and on hand 24/7, should you require any assistance. For guests staying a week or more we offer a private tour of Monzie Castle and our own 1950's Hydro Electric power station. For guests staying for shorter periods, we will do our best to accommodate a tour, subject to availability (we work full time and have a baby) and appreciate your flexibility and understanding!
Enjoy the truly spectacular views from all windows which have inspired many artists, or sit outside in the pretty, enclosed cottage garden and soak up the fresh country air. Walks straight from the door. Close to Crieff and tourist attractions.

Monzie Estate is great for walking, mountain biking and wildlife with recommendations from cottage owner.

Pet Policy -
We welcome well-behaved dogs to our holiday cottages. There’s no need for you to leave your dog at home, after all they’re part of the family!

We ask for them to be kept under control and on a lead at all times, even while being exercised - so not to frighten the cows and sheep, which live close to the cottages.

We would not like for them to be left in the property unsupervised, as we know ourselves that this can cause much distress for the pets. Please note that although we accept your dog, the gardens at our properties are not completely escape-proof.

We do expect for you to take full responsibility, and have some consideration. With this in mind, we would like for you to follow our terms and conditions and understand that we don't want to upset our future guests who may be holidaying without a pet.

Pets must be flea treated before entering the property
Pets are not allowed upstairs - you must provide your own bedding for your dog to sleep on
Any droppings on the premises, including the garden, should be disposed of appropriately prior to your departure
Water/food containers must be provided - please do not use crockery belonging to the property
We know your dog will leave paw, nose and tongue prints so please clean these as and when you see them

This is a charming farmhouse in an easy to access location with sweeping Perthshire valley views. The house was well furnished and very clean with comfortable beds and good quality bedlinen, and much thought given to other additional needs such as nice hand soap, good kitchen utensils and cut firewood all ready for the lovely open fire. We were delighted with the welcome gift of wine and chocolate brownies left for us. Alexandra and David are great hosts who were helpful but not at all intrusive.

We had a lovely time at Alexandra. We had plenty of room and everything was nice, clean and cozy. The kitchen was big and perfect place to cook dinner while we were there.

Great weekend in a lovely, beautifully situated cottage. Despite our plans changing at the last minute and only two of us managing to go it was a great weekend, loved the cottage and would highly recommend to anyone looking to enjoy Perthshire. Well located to relax and chill out or to be active and enjoy the walking and other activities in the area

Alexandra was on holiday herself when we arrived but her friend Nana was on hand to help us on arrival and made the whole process run very smoothly, despite us only having booked two days in advance! Lovely property, very cosy and comfortable and in a beautiful part of the country. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a countryside retreat.

What a lovely well equipped and comfortable holiday home! We had a very warm reception which included homemade brownies and lemon curd. The cottage suited our purposes perfectly and had beautiful views across the countryside. It was a great base for Loch Lomond exploring with lots to do nearby. We'd highly recommend staying here!

We really enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, well furnished house and the local ambience; local people were without exception very pleasant towards us as visitors. Alexandra and David were very helpful and pleasant too - we particularly appreciated the home made jams and cakes, especially the gooseberry jam. The Lochearnhead Highland gathering and Famous Grouse tour were added delights! Particularly enjoyed the tour of Monzie Castle it was a better one than that at Palace of Scoon, in Perth, done earlier that day!
